SGX Consultation Papers on Climate and Diversity

SGX Consultation Papers on Climate and Diversity

We would like to invite you to provide your feedback to two SGX Consultation Papers issued on 26 August 2021, and in particular, your views on the proposed changes relating to board gender diversity:

  1. Consultation Paper on Climate and Diversity: The Way Forward; and
  1. Consultation Paper on Starting with a Common Set of Core ESG Metrics

As you would be aware, the global demand for disclosure on board diversity has been growing, with certain aspects of diversity, such as gender diversity, being widely tracked by investors and other stakeholders. Thus, SGX is seeking market participants’ views, amongst others, on whether gender should be made a mandatory component in the board diversity policy and if so, views on the disclosure of such information as part of a core set of common metrics.

For (1), we seek your views in particular on Question 9 on Board Diversity. Please submit your feedback using the attached form here.

For (2), we seek your views in particular on Question 1 on a common set of core ESG metrics to serve as a good starting point for issuers in their reporting of material ESG factors. Please submit your feedback using the attached form here.

Please submit your feedback to kaixiang_lim@imas.org.sg by 20 September 2021 (Monday), 6.00 p.m.  

IMAS will consolidate all feedback received from our members and submit them to SGX. The feedback will be attributed to IMAS. We will share the consolidated feedback with members who provided feedback to us. 

If you have any queries, please contact Lim Kai Xiang at kaixiang_lim@imas.org.sg or Yvonne Chung at yvonne_chung@imas.org.sg.
